"From conversations with constitu
tional delegates," Spauldlng writes,
"I nm convinced that tho lcnguo'B
report will bo rejected in tho conven
tion and that tho theory of tho Chi
cago proposal will bo adopted. This
merely gives cities tho presumption
of homo rule, giving tho legislature
the final authority.
"Thero nre certain exceptions. For
instance tho constitution will provldo
directly that cities may adopt a zon
ing system, may own nnd opernto utili
ties and may malo valid contracts
for n limited time with utility corporations."

candidate for the presidency," brought
It in, head and nil. Here It Is:
"Tnft's Hnt in tho Ring William
Howard Tnft, the only living ex-president,
offered himself ns a running
mate ot Lucy Pago Gnston, the only
woman candidate for the presidency
of the United .States, nt tho bnnquet
of the committee of fifteen In Chi

his father, ns well ns his two brothers,
himself and his two sons, hnvo an un

Mr. Taft had Just checked out nt
I he hotel where he hnd been staying.
An olllclnl of tho committee of lit

had suld nothing about tho vice presi

"Oh yes, when I met Mr. Tnft ho told mo ho wns well qualified to bo my

Representative Edward C. Little

ho should be n good American, If nil
cestry counts for anything. It came
out In the tercentenary of the Pil

John Alden of the Mayllower. Ills
grandfather's great-grandfather, John
nthnti Tn.vlor, fought nt LouMturgnnd
Hunker Hill. Another ancestor, Col.
Moses Little, won promotion nt Hunker
Hill. In the course of his remarks Col
onel Little said In part :
John Alden, about the twelfth di
rect descendant from John nnd Prlscil
la. Is u student In tho high school of
Kansas City, Kalis., now, mid wo ex
pect to have him at the celebration.
"A curious Illustration of the
growth nnd development of America,
and of the fact that it has been u
haven of liberty for those from nil tho
world, Is that fact that while this boy Is n direct descendant of this historic
Pilgrim father, his mother Is tho daughter of Russian parents, her father hav
ing led it grout colony of Russians who settled in central Kansas.

Popular County Assessor.
Mrs. C'ato Sells, wife of tho United
States Indian commissioner, Is greatly
Interested in her husband's work and
frequently accompanies him on his
visits of Inspection.
Many of these Inspection trips nro
Intensely interesting, ns for example
a visit to the Jlcurlllu Apaches In
southwestern Colorado and northern
New Mexico. A few years ago these
Indians appeared to be u doomed tribe,
diseased, poverty-stricken and with
out nmbltlon. Mr. Sells says of this
"I had n conference with several
hundred men of tho tribe. They were
full of tho zest of life, keenly Inter
ested In their Hocks and herds, ab
sorbed In plii)lK tho game of tho
new surroundings. Primarily, this
pooplo was snod by giving It n pur
peso and goal In life. Wo bought them
sheep out of tho tribal funds. Wo
bhowed them how to play the econom
ic gamo of sheep-ralslng. Oh, 1 tell

you, It's simply
tho gates of death."
